sluring your words
May 17, 2006
I have an HIV+ friend and the other night when we were having a conversation, and he began to slur his words. Yes he had a few drinks, but I have seen him drink before, he has never slured his words. Is this something I should be worried about? or not?
Response from Dr. Henry
Slurring words is something to worry about. Could be due to excess alcohol, a drug interaction (such as Sustiva or a protease inhibitor increasing levels of a psychotropic drug), fatigue (from something like sleep apnea), or other medical conditions such as a small stroke. KH
